📖Recommend for Grades 10 and up📖
by Julia Walton
Adam Petrazelli refuses to answer his therapists’ questions. Instead he writes down his answers and feelings in a journal for his therapists to read during their sessions. He is seeing the therapists to be monitored while being a part of a new drug trial for his Schizophrenia. Over the ten months of the trial, Adam shares his ups and downs of starting over in a new school with the secret of his mental illness, living with a stepfather who now seems afraid of him, and seeing all his “imaginary friends”.
A wonderful and intriguing story about living life with a mental illness. Adam is a delightful character, as are many of the supporting ones. As Adam attends a Catholic HS some readers may finds some parts a little too heavy on religion but that should not deter one from reading this story.
